Shropshire Guide

Shropshire is wonderful county for walking with the high ground concentrated in the south. The north is flat and an extension of the Cheshire Plain. In contrast, the southern half of the county contains some of the finest walking along the Welsh Borders with the Long Mynd and associated hills, Brown Clee Hill, Clun Forest and Wenlock Edge all offering many high-quality walks. To the west of the county, the Offa's Dyke National Trail runs north to south and offers the basis for many excellent circular walks.
